Because cities have airports and receive international flights, most of the attention from news and aid organizations goes there.
We send small, ultra-light emergency medical teams to the remote areas first.
Then we scale this model up. We’re changing how the world responds to complex disasters.
Our Mobile Medical Teams provide critically needed care as quickly as possible for those who are the most difficult to reach.
>You hear that ambulance on your street? That’s prehospital health care. A lot of countries don’t have that.
We provide adaptable global health programming to address gaps in ongoing humanitarian relief efforts.
In 2012, NYCMedics was approached by Orant Charities, a nonprofit that had been working in Malawi for several years supporting communities through clean water and livelihood initiatives. Realizing that most of these communities had little or no access to any form of medical care, Orant asked NYCMedics to help implement a medical program strategy.
Over the course of ten days, NYCMedics conducted a needs assessment that included meeting with the Ministry of Health; key federal, regional and local government officials; national and international medical and social service organizations; and local hospitals and clinic staff.
We also conducted medical clinics in the targeted communities. Orant was able to build upon our work in Malawi and now operates a permanent rural health center on a seven-acre campus which averages 4,100 patients per month.
